An SF General Store Opens in Venice Beach

January 3, 2013

When proprietors Serena Mitnik-Miller and Mason St. Peter of San Francisco’s General Store opened shop, they put the Outer Sunset on the map. Now Hannah Henderson spiffs up Lincoln Boulevard with a Venice Beach outpost. As the branding creative (and owner of POP studio with partner John Moore) says, “To be honest, I had never really considered opening a store until I met Serena and Mason. I really loved what they had done with General Store, and I knew my community would appreciate it as much as I did.” It turns out she was right.

Above: “General Store in Venice is a bit bigger, which allows us to bring in more product and bigger pieces,” Henderson says. “Otherwise the two shops have a really similar feel. All of the local LA craftspeople we’ve discovered down here, we bring up to SF, and vice versa.”
